The Hotel is surrounded by an impressive tropical forest that belongs to the Nosara Civic Association, and it only takes a 15 minutes drive to Ostional National Wildlife Refuge which is one of the few privileged areas in Costa Rica where the Olive Ridley Sea Turtles, Leatherback and Pacific Green turtles lay their eggs. Turtles nest at Ostional all year round, but the arriving periods are more common from July through December where you can have one of the most beautiful opportunities to be in touch with Mother Nature.

Surf

This property is located near Playa Guiones - North. Same as Playa Guiones/Nosara just a little further North. Also called "Nosara", Playa Guiones is one of Costa Rica's most consistent breaks. This sandy bottom beach break seems to always have a peak to surf. The beachfront here is parkland so everything is set back a couple hundred meters from the sand. This makes Guiones a very peaceful and laid back getaway. Surfing is possible all along the beach, just find yourself a peak. You may find better shape on the North end of the beach. There is also a point that sometimes breaks there. Overall a forgiving wave and great for beginners. There are many surf schools in Nosara that use this area as their classroom.
